Unpaginated (30pp., printed on the recto only). Original stapled blue paper wraps stamped in gilt with a decorative purple ribbon. This copy briefly inscribed and signed by the author on the verso of the front wrap. Presumably a very limited printing since the title page states, "Written expressly for George Grant Hoag Jr. by his dad." Includes a cute poem on Christmas, with the admonition, "When you've finished with your toys that have given so many joys give them to poor girls and boys. For children there are who never see the beauties of a Christmas tree; your toys will fill their hearts with glee. Giving always makes you glad but selfishness will make you sad, be thankful for the blessings you've had." This bookseller might add, "And eat all of your food because children are starving in Africa." I didn't say the poetry was good; it is just scarce. Some smudging to the text in the margins. If a good collector you will be, wash your hands faithfully. As this listing progresses, it turns out that George G. Hoag Sr. was a business parter of J.C. Penney's and served the early company as Vice President. The Hoags made a fortune with Penney and were philanthropists. Scarce. No copies listed in OCLC. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
